At 5pm (in both Chile and Brasilia) the voting tables began to close. Brazil the presidential primary will be held this Sunday, with elections for governors, senators, and federal and state representatives.
Thus, the Supreme Court officially began counting the votes.
However, many places are unable to close due to long lines, and authorities expect to be open for a few more hours.
After four politically motivated murders during the day’s election campaign and multiple clashes between supporters of two leading presidential candidates, a scenario of violence was expected. Jair Bolsonaro and former president Lula da Silva even the Supreme Court has banned the carrying of weapons from this Saturday through this Monday.
However, the day ended without any major accidents.
